This is an unfortunate cultural relic created by arch/tla, and hilariously
promulgated by git. Sure, fewer people are familiar with them, but the good
ones are not harder to learn. In fact, because full source code management
functionality is available to you without having prior permission from the
developers (an account), you can learn the basics (functionality shared by
distributed and centralised systems) way faster.

(The only difficult/additional thing to learn in the current environment is
distributed best practices, and that is only an issue if you're actually
using the distributed functionality; just because the tool does it, doesn't
mean you have to!)
